This is why dogs are so incredible.

Quote

NEWTOWN, Conn.—A Lutheran charity group has sent about eight golden retrievers to comfort the survivors of Friday's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Lutheran Church Charities in Addison, Ill., sent the dogs on an 800-mile journey to respond to the disaster.

Lutheran Church Charities President Tim Hetzner told the Chicago Tribune that the dogs "are nonjudgmental. They are loving. They are accepting of anyone."

Dogs and animals in general can be a very good company and comfort to humans. I love them!

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

I know from first hand experience how helpful animals can be for healing. Wish I could take my Terra up there. She is little and small children love her.
